This morning the wind chill was -43. The sign on the bank read -7 and the local station said with the gusts it feels like minus 43. Luckily I did not have to scrape ice off the car. At that temp it takes about 20 minutes to feel heat.
Earl the cat just dug himself into a blanket by the radiator.He seems to think the reading lamp is a sauna. It will be around 40 on Sunday so Earl can return to the wild. He usually greets me when I return looking for food. I have a few cans in the car in case a friend shows up.
I see him when I read outside always looking for a handout. If the weather gets bad
like a ptotracted period of rain I take him in. There was a three week period where it rained every day and I took him in for a few days.
I have no idea how anything survives out there but it does.
